Living in Michigan my basement is about 55 degrees all year. I was told I could keg beer without using a fridge to keep beer cold. Just place the kegs against an outside wall. Any thoughts. I would like to keg but don't have the cash or room.
If you like beer @ 55° it sounds like you can join the green crowd and not pay for electricity. To me it sounds like the best thing to do with a basement that is that cold. Here in CA we don't have basements and they wouldn't be that cool if we did. I keep my kegs in the garage in the winter, and that's about the temp., but there can be temp. swings that force me to either put them in the fridge, or drink them faster (want odds on what I do?).
Go for it - get a keg and the CO2
and you may never bottle again.
